For those who eat, sleep and dream about trout fishing, Upper Canyon Outfitters offers a unique opportunity to do just that on the famed Ruby River in southwest Montana.
The Angler’s Dream Package is an all-inclusive fly-fishing bundle designed for fishermen who just can’t get enough time on the water. UCO’s fly-fishing guests have the use of over two miles of the Ruby River and a private spring fed pond on the ranch. Full-time fishing guides are available at for instruction, float trips, walk/wade trips, and information on the latest water conditions and hatches.
Fishing on the Ruby is all walk/wade, and its gravel bottom and low gradient make it easy to navigate. If the challenge of technical, small tributaries is preferred, there are plenty of opportunities along the Ruby’s headwaters, as are small streams within the nearby Beaverhead National Forest. Additionally, partaking in the most quintessential Montana fishing experience there is, floating in a drift boat, is possible on the famous Madison, Beaverhead, Big Hole or Jefferson rivers.
Guests can mix and match among diverse waters and private leases to create a week that they will always remember. And don’t forget, here on the Ruby, we have five different species of fish for anglers to target: grayling, rainbow, brook, brown and cutthroat.
The Angler’s Dream Package includes daily/unlimited guided walk/wade fly fishing, accommodations and home-cooked meals. Or, take a day to enjoy some other UCO activities such as horseback riding, hiking, 4×4 tours, history tours or wildlife watching at no additional charge. Rod fees are also included.Fish It Rates
